WARNING
2. Driving on extremely bumpy roads which
cause severe vibration may cause the sound
to skip.
may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined
by turning the equipment off and on, the user
is encouraged to consult the dealer or an
experienced radio/TV technician for help.
INFORMATION FOR USERS:.
CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS TO THIS
PRODUCT NOT APPROVED BY THE MANUFACTURER WILL VOID THE WARRANTY AND
WILL VIOLATE FCC APPROVAL.
3. This unit uses a precision mechanism. Even
in the event that trouble arises, never open
the case, disassemble the unit, or lubricate
the rotating parts.
4. TV broadcast reception
When receiving the TV broadcasts, the
strength of the signals changes since the car
is moving, so in some cases it may not be
possible to receive clear pictures.
• TV signals are strongly linear, so reception is
affected by buildings, mountains and other
obstacles.
• Such external factors such as electric train
lines, a high voltage lines, and signal devices
may disturb the picture or cause noise.
∗ If the reception is poor, switch to a station
with good reception.
Handling
Storage
• New discs may have some roughness around
the edges. If such discs are used, the player
may not work or the sound may skip. Use a
ball-point pen or the like to remove any
roughness from the edge of the disc.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or any
heat source.
• Do not expose discs to excess humidity or dust.
• Do not expose discs to direct heat from
heaters.
Ball-point pen
Cleaning
Roughness
• Never stick labels on the surface of the disc or
mark the surface with a pencil or pen.
• Never play a disc with any cellophane tape or
other glue on it or with peeling off marks. If
you try to play such a disc, you may not be
able to get it back out of the DVD player or it
may damage the DVD player.
• Do not use discs that have large scratches,
are misshapen, cracked, etc. Use of such
discs may cause misoperation or damage.
• To remove a disc from its storage case, press
down on the center of the case and lift the
disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
• Do not use commercially available disc
protection sheets or discs equipped with
stabilizers, etc. These may damage the disc
or cause breakdown of the internal
mechanism.
• To remove fingermarks and dust, use a soft
cloth and wipe in a straight line from the
center of the disc to the circumference.
• Do not use any solvents, such as
commercially available cleaners, anti-static
spray, or thinner to clean discs.
• After using special disc cleaner, let the disc
dry off well before playing it.
On Discs
• Exercise a good precaution when loading a
disc with the panel open.
• Never turn off the power and remove the unit
from the car with a disc loaded.

1. When the inside of the car is very cold and
the player is used soon after switching on the
heater, moisture may form on the disc (DVD/
CD) or the optical parts of the player and
proper playback may not be possible. If
moisture forms on the disc (DVD/CD), wipe it
off with a soft cloth. If moisture forms on the
optical parts of the player, do not use the
player for about one hour. The condensation
will disappear naturally allowing normal

Liquid crystal panel/Generalities
Owner’s manual
For a longer service life, be sure to read the following cautions.
• Be sure to store the liquid crystal panel inside
the main unit when parking the car outdoors
for long period of time. The liquid crystal panel
will operate properly in a temperature range of
0 to 60˚C.
• Don’t allow any liquids on the set from drinks,
umbrellas etc. Doing so may damage the
internal circuitry.
• Do not disassemble or modify the set in any
way. Doing so may result in damage.
• Do not draw the liquid crystal panel out and
use it as a tray. Also, subjecting the liquid
crystal panel to shocks may result in
breakage, deformation or other damage.
• Do not let cigarettes burn the display. Doing
so may damage or deform the cabinet.
• If a problem should occur, have the set
inspected at your store of purchase.
• Do not insert objects or poke in the space
between the liquid crystal panel and the main
unit when the panel is tilted.
• Do not place anything on the display when the
panel is tilted.
• The remote controller may not work if the
remote control sensor is exposed to direct
sunlight.
• In extremely cold weather, the display
movement may slow down and the display
may darken, but this is not a malfunction. The
display will work normally when the
temperature increases.
• Small black and shiny spots inside the liquid
crystal panel are normal for LCD products.
• The liquid crystal panel may stop temporarily
when it opens or closes, when the engine
stops or when it is cold.
• The touchkeys on the display operate when
slightly touched. Do not press the touchkey
screen with much force.
• Do not push the case surrounding the
touchkey panel with much force. This may
cause malfunctioning of the touchkeys.
Cleaning
• Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth and gently wipe off the
dirt. For tough dirt, apply some neutral
detergent diluted in water to a soft cloth, wipe
off the dirt gently, then wipe again with a dry
cloth.
• Cleaning the liquid crystal panel
The liquid crystal panel tends to collect dust,
so wipe it off occasionally with a soft cloth.
The surface is easily scratched, so do not rub
it with hard objects.
Do not use benzene, thinner, car cleaner, etc.,
as these substances may damage the cabinet
or cause the paint to peel. Also, leaving
rubber or plastic products in contact with the
cabinet for long periods of time may cause
stains.
